You Don’t Know Reno

English: Skyline of Reno, Nevada. Camera is lo...

If you think Reno, Nevada is just a smaller version of Las Vegas then you don’t know Reno! Some people think all there is to do here is gamble and eat at the enormous buffet’s presented by the casino’s. There’s a bit more to it than that.

When I first moved to Reno, NV, almost nineteen years ago, I didn’t think much of the place. In fact, I thought it was unattractive and boring. I happened to mention this to an older lady, a longtime resident of Reno. She looked at me and said, “Well, you don’t know history then. Reno is full of history.” This shocked me a little (alright, it shocked me a lot). That little old lady was right: I knew nothing about the part Reno played in U.S. history.

But, I wanted to find out.

I’ve been learning a little bit here and there, and I plan on sharing these findings with you and we can enjoy the journey of discovering Reno together.

Reno, Nevada means to me:

  • Reno is history
  • Reno is architecture
  • Reno is a family town
  • Reno is a small town with big dreams
  • Reno is literary
  • Reno is art
  • Reno is music

That’s what I have to say. What do you think about the city where you live?
